Experience the Aurora Borealis from your hotel room in the Westfjords, Iceland. The lights are visible above our hotel during winter (September – March). This season offers a sense of wonder and magic with its snowy sights and dancing Aurora Borealis.
Hotel Látrabjarg is located in Örlygshöfn, Patreksfjörður close to some of the most spectacular natural wonders of Iceland. Breakfast is offered each morning. Wireless Internet access is complimentary. Complimentary self parking is available on site. We are a smoke-free property, and serve dinner menu of the day from 19:30 – 20:30.
Come and watch one of the most breathtaking spectacles in the world, we will be happy to welcome you!
Situated in Vestfirdir, the Westfjords of Iceland, our family-run hotel is 23 km from the bird cliffs of Látrabjarg. It is the perfect spot for Aurora watching, as there is little to no light pollution, and aurora appears frequently above the hotel sky.
Winter is the perfect season to catch some beautiful Northern Lights from the hotel. They usually climb from the Cliffs surrounding the hotel and lit up the starry night. They can appear at any time between 8PM-3AM. We recommend downloading an Aurora App to know when you can expect the lights to appear!
We offer free Wi-Fi and an on-site restaurant with bar.
Each elegant room at Hotel Latrabjarg has a work desk. Some have a seating area and sea views of the Ölfus Harbour. You can even view the Northern lights from your hotel room!
A 3-course dinner menu of local produce is available, as well as a daily breakfast buffet and light meals from the bar. Latrabjarg Hotel can help arrange horseback riding and fishing licenses.

The owner was very helpful and friendly, made us feel like at home. The room was nice and clean. The bed was super comfortable. We also had free delicious breakfast at the hotel. Everything was perfect! We will definitely stay this hotel again next time when we visit Latrabjarg!
If you want to experience a magical side of the fjords, filled with Northern lights, then winter (September to March) is the best choice. We recommend a visit of at least 7 days, to increase the probability of catching a beautiful Aurora!
This beautiful spectacle is quite unpredictable. We have seen Northern Lights appear above our hotel as early as 8PM, and as late as 3AM. Sometimes it lasts for hours, and other a few minutes. We recommend using an Aurora App and staying awake during your stay to see the lights.
It is definitely worth staying awake!
As of the beginning of 2023, there is no Uber service in Iceland. This being a big island with widely spread cities, it is recommended to rent a car while you visit. If you do not feel like driving, there are other means of transportation available, such as taxis, buses and tours. In Reykjavik you can also find electric scooters from Hopp or Zolo.
Iceland’s legal currency is the Icelandic Krona. Although, most establishments (and even buses) will accept credit card payments. See the exchange rate from USD to ISK here.
Iceland is the perfect country for adventure. If you love nature, peace and sightseeing, this is a perfect fit. Depending on the season you visit, you will get to know a different side of the island (see the best time to visit below). The most popular activities among tourists are:
